Residential Wiring Trainer


Residential Wiring Trainer, #402

This comprehensive training system facilitates training in the proper and safe installation of residential wiring circuits.

The training aid provides two realistic training environments. The front panelboard allows for complete wiring of a simulated five room house, where the emphasis is wiring multiple circuits within a complete system. A second training environment in the rear of the unit offers an actual three- dimensional stud wall room environment, where the student can undertake practical hands-on installation exercises. Here the emphasis is on using proper craft technique when installing Romex cable, BX cable, and thin-wall conduit in different circuit configurations.

The entire device operates at 12/24 VAC for safety. All components, excluding lights, are full-size commercial products.

This device represents a complete learning experience in basic house wiring for the apprentice electrician.
